Christmas Cookie Countdown- 17 days 'til Christmas

This morning we enjoyed a visit over at our friends' house.

My friend Sheri is so sweet. When I talked to her last night about coming over she asked what I was going to do about my baking if we weren't home in the morning (knowing that the morning is typically when the girls and I have found ourselves in the kitchen) and offered to have us come bake at her house.
And I am so glad she did because she introduced me to the MOST AMAZING recipe ever!

Yup, Toffee Bars are definitely my new favorite dessert.
What do I love about them?
*They call for ingredients that I always have on hand
*They are super duper easy to make.
*AND.....they just taste unbelievable- just like eating a homemade Skor bar. Mmmmmmmm!

Now go right now into your kitchen. Pull out these ingredients and make the most delicious Toffee Bars EVER!
I mean it!
(you'll thank me for being so bossy once you take your first bite!)

Our Lesson: We are so thankful for the friends that God has given us.
Friends who share their home, toys, snacks and yummy recipes with us :)

Toffee Bars

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
2 cups chocolate chips
24 crackers (we used Breton, but you can used saltine or whatever you have in your pantry!)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Line a cookie sheet with foil. Cover the bottom with crackers.

Melt brown sugar and butter in a saucepan, bring to a boil for 4-5 minutes until caramelized.
Pour sugar mixture over the crackers & put in the oven for about 5 mins (until bubbly).

Remove and cover with chocolate chips. Put back in the oven for a minute to melt the chocolate.
Remove and spread chocolate with the back of a spoon.

Place in fridge (or if it's -20C, outside!) to cool.
Break into pieces.

And..... I DOUBLE DOG DARE you to only eat one!


  1. I know I would eat more than one ... yum!

  2. I agree with SnoWhite - more than one would not be a problem! :)

  3. OK, so after your comment I had to come and visit your blog! I have one daughter allergic to nuts and another allergic to eggs. Maybe you and I should do a recipe exchange. LOL. The toffee looks delicious and so easy. We will definitely be giving this a try!

  4. I love to do this with think chocolate mint cookies so good. Thanks for sharing!
